So I found an old article from about 2015, but I thought that we could all use a reminder that it is okay to go without wearing a bra.
Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon, a sports medicine specialist from Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Besancon in Besancon, France, published a study explaining his results of a 15 year study of women wearing bras and women not wearing bras. A total of 330 women volunteer between the ages of 18 and 35.
Each year the women came in and their breast measured with a slide ruler and caliper, the information was then recorded.
“Our first results confirm the hypothesis that the bra is a false need,” Rouillon said to France Info. “Medically, physiologically, anatomically, the breast does not benefit from being deprived of gravity. Instead, it languishes with a bra.”
At the end of the study it showed that the women who weren’t wearing bras had a 7 millimeter (about 0.27 inches) each year. One volunteer even said that not wearing a bra helped her breathe better, stand up straighter, and have less back pain.
I know for some of us it may not be ideal to not wear a bra, but when you lounging around at home take it off and relax nobody is there to judge you. It’s your body.
